N.C. elementary schools may offer full in-person classes

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina elementary schools will soon be allowed to return to daily, in-person classes under a plan announced by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.

The decision on whether to return to full in-person instruction will be left up to individual districts.

Those choosing to go forward with the Plan A reopening option starting on Oct. 5 won’t be limited in the number of students who can be inside a classroom.

They would, however, be required to screen kids for coronavirus symptoms, make sure they wear face coverings and offer remote options for parents concerned about their kids bringing the virus back home.
